This is done in comparison of the present continuum approach to lattice results in discussing the role of center-vortex loops and the magnetic monopoles that associate with them.
If magnetic monopoles are finally detected, it would get rid of the current asymmetry between electricity and magnetism - something that bugs a lot of physicists - and prove, once and for all, that the two are truly analogous.
I would later learn about a hypothetical one-dimensional curve in space--a Dirac string stretching between two magnetic monopoles with opposite magnetic charges, or from one magnetic monopole out to infinity.
This relativistic and gauge invariant theory of broken symmetry is based on a nonzero electric field divergence in the vacuum, in combination with a vanishing magnetic field divergence due to the non-existence of observed magnetic monopoles.
By adjusting the sizes of the modified Alford loop and ground plane ([d.sub.g]), the radiation fields of the electric and magnetic monopoles can be made equal in amplitude with phase quadrature, which are required for generating CP fields.
Since Dirac argued [1] in 1931 that a possibly explanation of the electric charge quantization requires the existence of magnetic charges, the magnetic monopoles are a permanent and recurrent problem from either theoretical or experimental points of view.
In this case, the role of electrons in electric current is played by "magnetic monopoles" that move around by virtue of the shifting positions of atomic groupings in a crystalline material called spin ice.
